Dr. Steve Mann, creator of the EyeTap Digital Eye Glass, predicts that the rise of augmented reality devices will slowly erode opposition from government and corporate entities in an opinion piece in Time. Mann — who claims he was assaulted in a McDonald's earlier this year for wearing his EyeTap headset — believes that his own device and Google's Project Glass will create a movement of "sousveillance," or surveillance by individuals. For more on the EyeTap device, which Mann claims he invented as early as 1978, and the potential wide-reaching effects of these products, check out the full article at the source link below.
